Giovanni Alfonso Borelli (28 January 1608 - 31 December 1679) was a Renaissance Italian physiologist, physicist, and mathematician. His major scientific achievements are focused around his investigation into biomechanics. This work originated with his studies of animals. Borelli's publications, De Motu Animalium, relate animals to machines and utilize mathematics to prove his theories. During his career, he enjoyed the patronage of Queen Christina of Sweden.
